The ability to monitor usage stats via SNMP would be handy. A lot of
the mechanism could be shared with back-monitor, giving access to
things like cumulative numbers of queries, current number of
connections etc.

I think the 'right' way to do this would be for SLAPD to register itself
with the master SNMP daemon using AGENTX. A less intrusive
implementation might use an SNMP module that queries back-monitor
using LDAP and translates the results. This could be prototyped quite
easily using the new net-snmp perl-agent module (though that module is
still at a pre-alpha stage so I would not want to run it in production
